Lost in the Beauty of Bad Weather
In the Beauty of Bad Weather
Bad weather? Everyone rushes home, only Christophe Jacrot grabs his camera and sets off. The French photographer is considered the pope of bad weather photography. He specifically looks for rain, snowstorms and fog to take his grandiose, beautiful, melancholic shots. For it is precisely this mood that inspires the photographer to take his unique pictures. In his photographs, you see empty streets that seem almost mystical in the very special light conditions of the bad weather fronts. Few people, reduced, concentrated scenes framed by snowflakes or raindrops, this essence in the pictures is what makes Jacrot's photographs so appealing to his fans.
